In 1904, New York nuns brought 40 Irish orphans to a remote Arizona mining camp, to be placed with Mexican-Catholic families. The town's Anglo-Americans, furious at this "transgression," formed a vigilante squad that kidnapped the children. The church sued but the U.S. Supreme Court ruled for the vigilantes. Gordon tells this gripping story.
